Sony, Sharp and Philips are on the bandwagon and will release TVs based on Android TV in 2015. Android TV combines streaming services, apps, and a game console in one platform. It will also be available in small TV streamer boxes.
LG has a range of new OLED TVs coming out in 2014 as well as new Ultra HD and Full HD TVs. LG is also introducing a new webOS-based Smart TV platform that looks promising. Could 2014 be the year where LG establishes itself as the leading Korean TV innovator?
Panasonic is introducing their new AX900 with “plasma-like picture quality” and a range of new Full HD models – some very basic, some with advanced features. Panasonic is also introducing a new Smart TV user interface called Life+ that recommends relevant content.
In 2014, Philips will introduce its first TV with the new Android-based Smart TV platform. They will also launch Ultra HD TVs and TVs with twin tuners, Miracast screen mirroring and a new Cloud TV app that streams TV channels over the internet.

Sony presents the HT-CT60 and HT-CT260 sound bars. The latter comes with a wireless subwoofer that can be placed anywhere in the living room, as well as Bluetooth music streaming.

Sony's new sound bars can improve sound quality when connected to your Sony TV or any other flat panel TV. The CT260 is the most powerful variant but both can imitate surround sound with Sony’s so-called 3D sound system.

Both come with a subwoofer and the subwoofer for the CT260 is wireless. It only requires power but can be placed anywhere in the room and link up wirelessly to the main sound bar unit. The smaller CT60 promises 60W effect and the larger CT260 delivers 300W if you add up the total effect as is the norm in the business today.

Sony HT-CT260 also features Bluetooth technology, enabling users to stream music from their PC, smartphone or tablet with Bluetooth support. With this feature users can avoid having to hook up cables.

Sony says that the HT-CT60 will be available by the end of September and that the HT-CT260 will be available from early October – in other words, we should expect to get the first glimpse at IFA 2012.
